Takeaway Insurance – What Is Covered?

Takeaway insurance policies provide a single solution for fast food operators covering all your requirements under-one-roof. Core cover provides protection for business contents, fixtures and fittings (such as catering equipment and commercial kitchens) and stock.

In addition, the fast food policy will provide cover for your key legal liabilities, public liability, products liability and employers liability insurance. Extensions and further benefits include: money cover; signage, glass and shop front; legal expenses and business interruption for loss of profits following a claim.

Is Takeaway Insurance Compulsory?

The only areas of cover legally required to operate a takeaway are motor insurance, in respect of any vehicles used in connection with the business, and employers liability insurance. Employer liability provides cover for compensation claim awards and defence costs following injury or illness to employees as a result of their employment with your takeaway – for example, a shelf collapses onto one of your team in the stock room and breaks their arm.

Local authorities are also likely to request proof of public liability insurance as part of the licensing approval process. Public liability provides indemnity for claims received from customers, or members of the public, for injury or damage to property as a result of actions by you, or a member of staff, in connection with your business.

How to Save Money on Fast Food Insurance

How to Save Money on Fast Food Insurance

Whilst saving money is often a key driver when purchasing business insurance, it is equally important to ensure that cover is adequate for your needs. Catering and kitchen equipment in fast food establishments is an expensive asset and it is important that sums insured are adequate to reflect the reinstatement cost.
Improving security at the premises and good risk management can also reduce premiums, as well as considering different excess levels or removing unwanted cover extensions.
